TOKYO -- Japan's public and private sectors are moving into Mozambique in force, securing contracts to build power plants and agreements to provide technical assistance and training.
Trading house Sumitomo Corp. is to sign a contract with a state-run power company Wednesday to construct a gas-fired power plant some 700km northeast of Maputo, the southeast African country's capital. Work is expected to begin next year, with completion slated for 2021. The 100,000kW facility will satisfy 10% of Mozambique's power needs. Japanese heavy-machinery maker IHI will supply the power-generation equipment.
